I love the beach. I love water. I live in Utah, a desert. Quite an oxymoron you might say. But I would say to you is that I have access to a great beach and water at Bear Lake, Utah. And it is only 2 hours from my home.
Bear Lake is nestled in a valley with many small towns surrounding it. It has a quaint, small town feel that is very refreshing.
1. I come for the Beauty of Bear Lake
Bear Lake is a freshwater lake on the border of Utah and Idaho. The lake has been called the “Caribbean of the Rockies” for its unique turquoise-blue color. The water is as aqua in color as the water I saw in the Caribbean.
2. I come for the Water
3. I come for the Beach
Bear Lake has a beach that is different every year depending on how much water we have received the previous winter. Remember that Utah is in a desert area.
Some years we have a beach that goes for miles.
Some beaches have no sand, just rocks.
But I love both types of beaches and enjoy the sun and sand.
4. I come for the Raspberries
Bear Lake is famous for its raspberries. They are large and bright red. They taste amazing!!
Bear Lake has a raspberry days celebration. The whole valley gets involved.
And I definitely do not miss out on having the chocolate covered raspberries. AMAZING!!
And do not forget the raspberry shakes.
5. I come for the Family Time
Swimming in a heated pool (Bear Lake is COLD all the time).
6. And finally, I come to unplug, relax, and rejuvenate.
If you have not had the chance to visit Bear Lake, Utah, you need to put it on your bucket list of places to explore.
If you do come to Bear Lake, give me a holler.
See Ya Makin’ Memories!
